Does a quadruple bypass treat all the major heart arteries?

In brief: Possibly

Although there are three main coronary arteries, these arteries themselves may have significant branches that themselves may need bypassing.
So 4 grafts do not necessarily treat all the major arteries, but will treat the 4 that are blocked.
